OLIO EXTRA-VERGINE di OLIVA. PIANOGRILLO 5l - Sicilia
Olives : Tonda Iblea.
Pianogrillo Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced organically by Lorenzo Piccione in the town of Chiaramonte Gulfi, in the province of Ragusa, from a local variety called Tonda Iblea. “Tonda” refers to the olives’ beautiful round shape, and “Iblea” comes from the Monti Iblei in southeast Sicilia, where this olive is thought to have originated.
Acidity level is below 0.2%.
The olives are harvested at the perfect maturity in October, individually hand-picked and gathered in wood crates and immediately transported to the family-owned mill. While the olive grove is ancient - some trees are nearly 1000 years old - the production process is modern and clean, combining the best of Sicilian olive tradition with the latest technological innovations to produce a truly outstanding olive oil.
